Just north of Seattle in Snohomish County, Gaosheng Cha grows flowers, berries, and tomatoes, and has many hives producing honey in a variety of flavors. Gaia’s Harmony Farm is named after the Gaia, the Greek goddess Mother Earth, and Harmony, which is the environment that Gaosheng aspires to create at the farm.
Gaosheng’s parents are Hmong immigrants who started farming in 1993. She and her daughters have continued the family farm, running the operations in Snohomish while her parents primarily farm on their other plot of land in Puyallup. She is currently building new greenhouses with the hopes of expanding her tomato growing operation and experimenting with growing mushrooms in 2018.
If you’re looking for a unique honey experience, Gaia’s Harmony is the place to go. With berry, flower, fireweed, and knotweed honeys, as well as flavored cream honey and medicinal infused honey, she can take care of all of your sweet needs! Her products make a great gift and you’ll definitely want to take home a jar for yourself while you’re at it.
All of her honey creations can be sampled weekly at the Capitol Hill Farmers Market on Sundays.
